Saliva drug test detection times

The time that drugs can be detected after last use in a saliva sample tends to be shorter than with urine drug testing, meaning that saliva testing is a very good indication of whether an individual is under the influence of drugs, at the time the drug test is performed.

This is of particular value for businesses who want to know if their employees are impaired by drugs at work, particularly in safety critical industires. The new police roadside drug test in the UK is a also saliva test so that the police can determine whether the driver is under the influence of drugs while driving.

What drugs can be tested for with a saliva drug testing kit ?

Saliva drug test kits have improved considerably in the last couple of years, and the number of drugs that can now be screened for with oral drug testing has increased.

Some of the newer saliva drug test kits such as the Oral Swab Cube shown in the picture above can be purchased in 5 panel, 6 panel, 7 panel, 11 panel and 12 panel combinations of drug test.

This means that the range of drugs that can be screened for with oral drug testing is much broader than it used to be. The 11 & 12 panel oral cube drug test kits also screen for alcohol, which can be very useful in the workplace, meaning that there is no need for additional testing or breathalysing of employees.

Oral drug testing kits becoming increasingly popular in the UK workplace

For many UK companies saliva drug testing is now the method of choice, particularly where drug testing needs to be done quickly, or onsite such as at a building sites, roadside or track side.
